“As a man of vision, Dr. Joyner is revered locally and nationally as a man of leadership, integrity, and compassion.”
Dr. C. William Joyner Jr., son of the late Reverend Clarence and Ruth E. Joyner Sr., was born in 1947, in Georgetown, South Carolina. In 1980, Dr. Joyner was called by God to teach His word. Being obedient to God’s word, Dr. Joyner has been teaching and preaching for more than twenty years.
Dr. Joyner and First Lady Vermell Smalls Joyner are proud parents of four children: Derrick, LeKesha, Clarence III, and Nicole and the grandparents of seven.
As a man of vision, Dr. Joyner is revered locally and nationally as a man of vision, leadership, integrity and compassion. He introduced God’s plan for Broadway through the implementation of the vision given to him from God. The vision was the construction of a new sanctuary and Family Life Center. On July 20, 2000, the Ground Breaking Ceremony for the Family Life Center was held. On Sunday, April 9, 2001, Dr. Joyner led the congregation in its last worship service in the old sanctuary, now the B.J. Williams Educational Building. On April 16, 2001, the Broadway Baptist Church Family was led by Dr. Joyner into the new Family Life Center for the first worship service in the new facility.
Each year, Broadway Baptist Church serves as the site for many of the country’s most noted conferences and workshops. Through these conferences hosted by Dr. Joyner, many are blessed, saved and led to Christ each year. Through his ministry, people are discovering their mission in life. Because of the favor on his life, Dr. Joyner has close relationships with key leaders in the religious, political and entertainment arenas. Through the vision and teachings of God, Dr. Joyner is truly advancing the Kingdom of God in a whole new way.
